Life’s building blocks grow close to home

Chemical reactions in the early solar system create complex organic molecules By Nadia Drake April 21st, 2012; Vol.181 #8 (p. 5) EMBRYONIC CLOUD The swirling, dusty disk surrounding a young star (NGC 1333-IRAS 4B shown in this artist’s illustration) contains particles that can host complex organic molecules, the building blocks of life as we know it on Earth. A new study suggests that the chemical reactions that craft these...

Life’s building blocks grow close to home

hough life is a complicated brew, some of its ingredients can be plucked from Earth’s backyard instead of being imported from more distant interstellar fields. In a new study, scientists suggest that complex organic molecules — such as the amino acids that build proteins and the ringed bases that form nucleic acids — grow on the icy dust grains that lived in the infant solar system. All it takes are high-energy...
